Time Out Melbourne

In the name of love - book a stay in one of the city’s most romantic hotels and set the scene for seduction

When you want the restaurant to come to you….
Crown Metropol’s room service comes courtesy of Gordon Ramsay’s Maze restaurant and is hard to beat. Crown’s newest property also houses one of Melbourne’s best hotel pools and day spa. There’s also a club lounge for a glass of bubbles before (or after) rolling in bed. For that special touch (that you forgot to plan for) the super–efficient concierge team will source the city’s freshest flowers at little notice or anything else you might need.

When you want to stay in bed…
InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto has plush rooms, which come decked out with all the bells and whistles you’d expect – you don’t need to leave the hotel. InterContinental’s concierge team are the best in the business - they’ll go the extra distance to satisfy your every whim, so test them out. Want your bed adorned with rose petals? Done. Want sold-out theatre tickets? No problem. Think of these guys as your personal Aladdin– just don’t ask to rub their lamp.

When you want a room with it all…
When you bunk down at South Yarra’s Lyall Hotel, you could be mistaken for thinking you’re staying at a friend’s place, albeit a posh one complete with a private bar and day spa. The rooms and suites are spacious, comfy and depending on the size, feature everything from mini-bars stocked with gourmet treats to outdoor terraces and fire places.

When you want to make your partner swoon...
Fancy yourself a bit of a gun on a piano? Then why not sweep your partner off their feet by playing a few songs on the baby grand while they kick back in the huge jacuzzi? That’s what’s on offer in the Como Suite Chapel Street’s, The Como. It’ll set you back a cool $1300, but this is undoubtedly one of Melbourne’s best rooms and if you have the right skills on the keys, it’s an ideal place to tease, tempt and spoil your loved one.

When you want a private jacuzzi…
Almost every room at Hotel Urban St Kilda comes with a jacuzzi and with rates starting from just $160 per room, you can’t go wrong. There’s no baby grand, but the hip hotel has a great bar, which acts as the perfect for an aphrodisiac to get the night started….or finished.
